This book focuses on special issues of climate change man- agement in Asia. It discusses the challenges of climate change governance, and examines the impact of climate change on agriculture and food security. The author includes a rare work relating to a new dimension of climate change management— environmental knowledge management. The book also touches another special topic relating to climate change and legal issues in the maritime sector. Is the current maritime legal framework effective in preventing harms to the environment still a big question?
How the legal industry in Malaysia responds to climate change is also examined in this volume. Finally, the agriculture sector in Japan investigates whether the adaptive method of introducing high-temperature tolerant varieties and the mitigation strategy affect the product price of rice. Overall, robust strategies, plans, and policies are required to provide directions to stakeholders so that they can effectively and efficiently respond to climate change challenges.
